The Texas Rangers and CEO Nolan Ryan are parting ways, as he’ll step down on October 31st. Since George Bush left office, he has been a frequent visitor to the Rangers Ballpark
“The Rangers will miss his presence — and I will miss sitting next to my pal at the ballpark,” Bush said in a statement sent by his office, via ESPN Dallas. “Laura and I wish Nolan and Ruth all the very best.”
For now, Ryan has no immediate plans to get back into baseball.
“Will I be the CEO of another major league ballclub? No, I won’t,” Ryan said, via ESPN Dallas. “But I’m not going to sit here today and tell you that I don’t know what a year from now might bring. This might be the final chapter of my baseball career. If there was something else I did, it certainly wouldn’t be in the role I had with the Rangers.”
For now he wants to spend time with his grandkids and work on his ranch, a hobby that he shares with Bush.
